After leaving her home in Texas at the early age of 15, Joy Womack made history as the first U.S.-born student to graduate from the Bolshoi Ballet Academy’s main training program and the first American woman to sign a contract with the Bolshoi Ballet.

Providing exclusive access to her grueling training regiment, JOY WOMACK: THE WHITE SWAN follows the world-renowned dancer’s personal and professional life – from her daily challenges, setbacks and injuries to becoming prima ballerina of the Kremlin Ballet and her performance of a lifetime in Swan Lake.

"Recommended" - EMRO

"An honest film, this documentary shows the dedication, sacrifice, and sometimes pain that becoming a top ballerina involves. Recommended for developing dance film collections. Students with an interest in ballet would be interested in the title to see what kind of dedication is involved with the rigorous discipline." - Video Librarian

"Highly recommended." - The Sound View
